We train on Tues. and Friday after school until 3:30pm.

SWAT works to change the social norms associated with tobacco. This means we want to change the way people think about tobacco… making it less desirable, less acceptable and less accessible. We do this by advocating for change in local policies that affect how tobacco is marketed, how it is sold, and where it can be used. SWAT members can expect to participate in a wide range of activities including community education and outreach, public speaking, collecting data, and media advocacy. SWAT members advocate for these goals by leading projects guided by professionals. As a member, they decide how to use advocacy to cause social change in a fun, cool and creative way. The important part is, SWAT gives youth real world experience: community service hours, college application building opportunities and hands on experience in leadership and advocacy.
SWAT meets the last Tuesday of the month at 2:15 in Eagles Nest. An activity bus is available. Please see Ms. Fortune for a parent permission slip. Thank you.

This club has just formed. Most of the members are NJHS members but we are currently opening our doors to others outside of NJHS who are interested in learning to play the ultimate card game. We are learning to play the most modern form of Bridge available and have received sponsorship in part from the American Contract Bridge League. We play Bridge after school every Thursday until 3:30 and we also meet during Eagle Hour.

would like to begin meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 3:30. Ms. Harvey and I will be leading this organization. We will be sending home a letter to let parents know that meetings will begin next Thursday after school.

Thank you! Jessica Brown
